Senvion announces its highest yield turbine for North America

Denver/New Orleans: Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, is launching its highest onshore yield turbine for the North American market. The Senvion 3.4M140 is equipped with a high-efficient and sound-optimized blade profile, managed by a new pitch control system to reduce turbine load. The Senvion 3.4M140 will be available from 2018 in hub heights of 110 and 130 metres. The longer 68-metre blades at these tower heights alone permit high yields at low-wind locations such as forested and mountainous areas.

Bernhard Telgmann, Executive Vice President for Product and Technology at Senvion, says: "Senvion continuously makes dedicated efforts to reduce the cost of energy of our turbines. For this purpose, we are launching our new 3.4M140. Developments such as serrations are a big step forward and even allow larger turbines to adapt to market requirements. Despite its size, the Senvion 3.4M140 will be one of the quietest turbines on the market and we will continue to optimize this technology." Compared with the 3.0M122, the 3.4M140 generates up to 20 per cent greater yields, depending on the location. A load-reducing pitch control system ensures a cost-efficient design. The service life is also extended to 25 years. This further development is thus making a major contribution to reducing the levelized cost of energy - and thereby to the competitiveness of wind energy.

Helmut Herold, CEO of Senvion North America, underlines: "Wind energy is competitive and capable of producing energy in the most diverse of places. With this new wind turbine, Senvion is committed to adapt its most innovative technology to the North American requirements. By offering the Senvion 3.4M140, with longer rotor blades that can be operated even more profitably and cost-efficiently at great heights, Senvion is offering a solution to make low-wind locations more profitable."

The Senvion 3.4M140 is a turbine that is ideal for all regions with low wind speeds and potential sound restrictions. The optimized blade profile with integrated serrations also reduces the sound power level of wind turbines. The Senvion 3.4M140 was first announced for the 50 Hz market this past September at Husum Fair. With an anticipated adaptation for the 60 Hz market, Senvion is launching the adapted version at AWEA Windpower 2016.
